    For old old windows and DOS you could. There was a packet driver
    implementation of PLIP in the crynwr collection. I don't think anyone
    ever bothered porting it to later Windows, they either dumped MS or
    spent $6 on a network card (100base T card + cable is cheaper than a
    laplink cable after all..)
